British boxer, Tyson Fury, has claimed Deontay Wilder will knock out Anthony Joshua in the first round if they ever fight.
He also lashed out at Joshua and his promoter Eddie Hearn, claiming “they are businessmen and I am a Spartan”.
Fury will defend his WBC heavyweight belt against Wilder in Las Vegas on July 24.
This comes after a mega-fight with Joshua fell apart.
Joshua will instead put his IBF, WBA and WBO belts on the line against Oleksandr Usyk in September.
“I’ll deal with these guys later – the most important thing to me is Wilder, the most dangerous heavyweight in the world who would knock out Joshua in the first round.
“I’ve got to get past Wilder then those guys will get their five minutes of fame. I’ll give them the biggest beatdown they have had in their lives,” Fury told Sky Sports.
